Maven POM files in the JFX code base

I've just been looking into some stuff around deploying the JavaFX
deployment tools into Maven Central and I noticed there are some pom.xml
files already in the JFX code base (e.g. master/rt/pom.xml).

What are these for and how do they get used? Are they used as part of the
standard build (I thought everything was purely ANT based, why add Maven as
well?) or are they just there as alternative? Do they work and, if so, are
they intended to build everything or just little bits of it all?
